You'll need to OK this with the translators (kde-i18n@)

I believe Thomas Zander was playing with this, but ran into trouble with where 
I put the createPrintDialog functions (ie: it's too far down the stack in 
kdelibs to depend on KFileDialog in KIO).  The suggested solution was to dl 
libkfile, but I think other things took over.
